Estonia is internationally acknowledged as an e-country. A digital society built by Estonians has no equal in the world. The uniqueness of the Estonian digital ecosystem attracts more and more people every year.
Entrepreneurs and professionals from around the globe come to Estonia to either invest and start a business or take advantage of the career opportunities that the Estonian market is happy to offer.
e-Residency programme launched in 2014 has mostly to do with the business sector and eventually has changed the Estonian business world forever.
The main purpose of the e-Residency program is to make life and business easier for freelancers, business owners, and international partners, as well as any other non-residents who are related to Estonia. E-Residency in Estonia makes it possible to start a business, expand your business, make investments or study in the European Union.
So far, nearly 80,000 entrepreneurs have already joined the digital nation, many of whom successfully develop their businesses in Estonia with e-Residency.
Electronic residency is a state-issued digital identity and an e-Resident status, which provides access to Estonian e-government services and a transparent paperless business environment.
The Estonian government issues E-Residency to non-citizens of Estonia who do not have the possibility of permanent residence on its territory but would like to have access to Estonia’s e-services and the European Union.
Established as a nationwide initiative, the e-Residency program is led by many government ministries and institutions whose efforts aim to improve Estonia’s digital infrastructure and business environment. But most importantly, thanks to Estonia’s EU membership, e-Residents have the right to use electronic services not only in the business environment of Estonia but in the entire European Union.
However, we should note that the e-Resident ID-card does not grant Estonian citizenship nor the right to enter the EU to its holder, as it is not a physical identity card. Besides, e-Residency, as such, is tax-free.
How it works
e-Residency provides a digital ID to users, which allows them to log into different online services in Estonia, such as online banks and government portals. The primary motivation to apply is to create and run an EU-based company 100% online. This gives entrepreneurs from all over the world the opportunity to run a business remotely.
In that way, it allows every willing foreigner to set up a company in Estonia remotely by applying online. e-Residency will help those who are not Estonian citizens but want to enter or invest in the Estonian market.
Electronic residency does not mean that you are a tax resident of Estonia. Regardless of your e-resident status, it is always necessary to pay personal income tax in the country in which you are a tax resident. It is essential to understand the difference between e-Residency and Estonian residency. e-Residency grants the owner only digital status, Estonian residency – physical status with social benefits and obligations.
The applicant is issued a plastic smart card with PIN-codes and a chip required for authentication via a USB digital card reader. It is required to install the free ID-software for identification. Thus, by using an ID-card, PIN-codes and a card reader, e-Residents gain access to e-services provided by Estonian state institutions and the private sector.
The ID-system allows you to sign official documents digitally. The digitisation of the Estonian state and society implies that electronic residents can sign agreements and interact digitally with all government institutions and most companies, eliminating the need for physical presence.
Who can apply
Estonia invites everyone in the world to apply for e-Residency if the following criteria are met:
- Reasonable interest in using Estonian electronic services.
- Not an Estonian citizen nor a foreigner residing in Estonia with a residence permit.
One of the indisputable advantages of e-Residency for a digital entrepreneur is location independence. Traveling and managing your business 100% remotely from anywhere in the world has become easier than ever, whilst access to the Internet will allow you to move abroad at any time without the need to re-establish your company again.
The vastness of the European markets will open new opportunities for the development of your business. The resident e-card will allow you to register a company in the EU without physical attendance. It is now possible to own your company without appointing a local director, while providers such as PayPal will handle online payments.
Using the software on your computer, online business development has become a piece of cake. Sign, authenticate, encrypt and send documents digitally. Tax declaration is also made online. You will now have access to the European Single Market and its cross-border capital.
How to apply for an e-Residency card
At that very first stage you need to submit your application for an e-Residency card. The process takes place online and is indeed straightforward.
Applications form is available on the e-Residency official website.
You need to prepare some documents beforehand:
- Copy of your verified ID
- Passport-style photo
- Motivation statement
- Visa or Mastercard
While submitting the application, you will be asked to pay a state fee and choose a pick-up location for your e-Resident card kit. The state fee is 100-120 EUR depending on the pick-up location.
Once submitted, check your email for confirmation and wait for your application’s approval, which usually takes between 4 and 8 weeks.
After receiving positive news, we kindly remind you to take your ID and pick up the kit strictly by yourself.
Since Covid-19 has complicated the situation with international air traffic, you have the right to use this option to find a suitable location to receive your e-Resident card. In order to redirect your document from one embassy to another, please contact the relevant Estonian embassy in a particular country.
Before changing the point of issue, additional state fees must be paid. More detailed information about the process can be found on the website of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. When changing the pick-up point of the card from one Estonian embassy to another, an additional fee of 80 EUR will be charged. Changing the pick-up location from the Estonian service point to the Estonian embassy will cost 30 EUR.
